    Aquatop PV40-UV on JBJ 28

    Anyone have experience with this HOB UV? I got one for 40 bucks, and its reviews were just as good as ones that were a lot more expensive. Was also thinking of putting some kind of bio media in it, like Xport or something. This will hopefully be setup with my Remora S skimmer. Both of which are ordered but not here yet. Just doing some homework! Thanks.

    Remora S on JBJ 28 - how to?

    Got a great deal on a Remora S, and I know it 'can' work on a JBJ 28, but all I have seen is pictures and it looks to me like the pump has to go in the same chamber as the left side (facing the tank) return pump. I use both of my return pumps for filtration, and I use my basket. How would I go about getting this thing to work with my setup? Thanks.
  3. What's up everyone? First post. This forum seemed most appropriate for what I have, and what I want to accomplish, so here I go... (to preface, I have done HOURS of researching before making this post, and previously ran a 90 gallon salt fish only tank) All I've done is prep the tank and put together the stand, no water or anything...Here's what I currently have to work with: HARDWARE: JBJ Nano Cube 28 gallon intermediate LED - stock everything JBJ stand (hey, it was free haha) Cobalt Aquatics NeoTherm 100w heater 2x Eheim Jager 250w heaters (from my 90 gallon) Ocean Pulse Duo wave maker (hooked to stock pumps) 1x MaxiJet 1200 power head (extra) 2x MaxiJet 900 power heads (extra) 2 small mercury thermometers FILTRATION/CHEMICALS: Aqua Advantage 2000 inline UV sterilizer, 15 watt (from my 90 gallon) Marineland Magnum 350 canister filter (from my 90 gallon - I have the basket + paper filters) Sera filter wool 3.5oz Chemi-Pure 5oz Purigen 100ml with small fine mesh bag Kent synthetic reef salt crushed coral substrate POWER: Belkin Surge Master surge protector 8 outlet (2 constant on) Titan Apollo 9 dual timer FOOD: Eheim 3581 automatic feeder (won't fit due to lid) New Life Spectrum Thera +A 4.4oz TESTING: API master test kit Coralife Deep Six hydrometer Instant Ocean hydrometer MISC: approx 40lbs base rock 2 small nets magnetic algae scrubber algae scrubber (wand style) 5 gallon water jug with cap + funnel to fill What I want in the tank: Fish mostly, as many as possible, with base rock and live rock with hardy, easy soft corals - just something that is fish based, but is also visually appealing and has areas to swim through and hide with good water current Things I'm trying to avoid: No sump, period... I want as little inside the tank itself and filter area as possible, so HOB stuff is preferable No chiller (I keep my place very cold, and winter is almost here) Not interested in buying a different media basket No additional pumps/hardware visible inside the tank itself (behind in filter area is OK) Things I want to try to achieve: Use the hood and stock LED lights (I have crazy cats) Re-use my UV light (if possible) Keep the media basket Everything added is either HOB or external - no additional pumps or hardware inside the tank As few water changes as possible (I live very far from anywhere I can get salt, and I ran my last tank with doing virtually NO water changes) SO! That all brings me to these questions... 1 - What would YOU do with all this given my criteria? I'm open to ideas, and if I have equipment that just will flat out not work, I am open to selling it if anyone's interested. 2 - Is it possible to re-use my UV light? If so, how? 3 - should I replace my factory return pumps with my extra MaxiJet 900's, or would there be much benefit? 4 - what am I missing? 5 - how would you setup the media basket with what I have? I'm sure I will think of more later. I know there are some VERY knowledgeable people on here, and I am open to ideas and want this tank to be successful. I haven't put a drop in it yet, and want to wait until I know everything is how I want it. Looking forward to some feedback!
  4. Hi everyone, A couple of weeks ago I was given a JBJ Intermediate 28 gal. Nano-Cube LED along with it's mature live rock, some invertebrates and a disaster of a hair algae bloom. I have zero experience with saltwater tanks, so I'm learning everything as I go. I wanted to share what's happened so far, get some help identifying things in the tank, and let you know that I am open to any advice people would like to share. The background on the tank is that the live rock, sand and inhabitants come from a 12 year old tank which sprung a leak; and everything was moved into the 28 Nano about a year ago. Survivors in the tank are 3 urchins, a sea star, 2 snails, a hermit crab, a small coral frag, and a super healthy looking aiptasia. We started by manually removing the worst of the hair algae (it was so bad it was coming out by the handful), moving the invertebrates and live rock out, filtering the worst of the particulates out of around 10 gallons of the original water, and draining and gently scrubbing the tank clean by hand. I tried to leave calcifying algae intact where I could. So starting with a clean, empty tank: I added 20 pounds of Arag-Alive sand, all the live rock (which I just set in the sand), and a mix of about 50% filtered tank water and 50% clean pacific ocean water. This is what it looked like initially: http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170910_191457187.jpg After the particulates settled, I put the inverterbrates into the tank, and later added a mixed dozen snails and hermits to help work on the algae. The water clarified beautifully, which is when I discovered the aiptasia (for anyone who's played final fantasy, this is definately a malboro), who thankfully had taken up residence inside a discarded shell so it was easy to remove. Next I figured out how the filtration system worked and discovered that one of the powerheads was not functioning; it's a three stage of which I replaced the mechanical filter and the activated carbon, and I was able to repair the powerhead. The Nano-cube comes with an Ocean Pulse Duo Wavemaker, which I have set on a 90 second cycle alternating the powerheads, no idea if this is good or not. The light hood of the tank has two separately powered LED sets, one for "Day light" at 14K and a blue one for "Moon" at 465nm. Again no idea what I should be doing with these, but I currently have "Day light" running for 13 hours per day and "Moon" turned off. I was told later on that my live rock should be making as little contact with the sand as possible for maximum water flow and to make little caves for critters, so I rearranged everything (and my wife told me I was doing it wrong several times) and finally wound up with this: http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170917_200912592.jpg Levels tested good on the tank water, so I added a juvenile Black Darwin Ocellaris a few days ago. He is a little hard to feed (trying both 1mm and 2mm PE Mysis pellets, and I just ordered some formula 1 flakes as well) since he never sits still, but he seems to be a lot less frantic than when he was first introduced to the tank. Not sure if this is normal behavior or part of the acclimation process, but as far as I've seen he spends all of his time hugging the glass of the tank, and none of it exploring the rockwork. On a whole, the water clarity is excellent. Hair algae is still growing noticably but not uncontrollably, though I am having to remove quite a bit by hand. One recommendation I received to help with the hair algae was to add a tailspot blenny to the tank. I've also received advice that I should add a maximum of 4 fish to the reef tank, would love feedback on that as well. Research is suggesting that I wait 2-4 weeks between adding new fish to the tank, what are people's experience with different wait times? I just ordered a protein skimmer, is there any other absolutely necessary equipment I should look into? Plans for future fish are currently: 1 Tail Spot Blenny (Ecsenius stigmatura) 1 Exquisite Firefish (Nemateleotris exquisita) 1 Six Line Wrasse (Pseudocheilinus hexataenia) With the ocellaris already in the tank, should they work well together? Any suggestions for utility invertebrates that could help out in the tank? Also, i'm taking my best guess identifying the things already in the tank: Some kind of tube worm? http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170911_071712598_HDR.jpg No idea, and I haven't seen it since I took this picture http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170911_164315933.jpg Also no idea, but it seems to be growing on the live rock http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170912_113211043.jpg These are in several spots around the tank, and they flouresce under blacklight http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170912_122622046.jpg Some kind of starfish? I've seen quite a few hanging onto things http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170918_155642429.jpg This is the mature aiptasia I removed from the tank; I've only found two tiny ones growing that I was (fingers crossed) able to kill successfully. I think it's neat looking, is there any use for it? http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170919_110157687.jpg Bubble algae? I'm trying to remove this carefully http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170919_110232295.jpg A neat shelled tiny snail my local shop gave me http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170919_181415261.jpg Banded Serpent Starfish? http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170919_181524807.jpg Sputnik Pencil Urchin? http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170919_184058569.jpg Soft Coral Frag, but which kind? http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170922_104943343.jpg What kind of Hermit Crab? http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170922_105753824.jpg What kind of snail? (We call him the old man of the sea) http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170922_110013478_HDR.jpg Sorry for all the outlinks, but photo uploading was giving me grief. Thanks for reading, and thanks in advance for your input.
  5. Read disclaimer at the bottom. Most things will need a little cleaning. I'm breaking down my 28 gallon JBJ nano. Equipped with Jbj 28 nano cube hood with rapid led aurora puck with 4 drivers that are dimable( 0-10v) through the apex. Hood also has 4 fans and night lights. Led Drivers come with plugs that plug into the apex vdm( probably have to use apex to dim. Would need to buy 4 parts in you don't have an apex ). 375.00 dollars for entire hood with drivers and apex cords shipped. Good shape could use a good cleanig. The hood was upgraded 6 months ago. Ecosmart vortec has mp10 Es w (white controller). from 2011- 110.00 Needs cleaned but runs cool a quiet. Sat unused for almost 4 years. had it linked to the apex with the wxm. Apex lite with display, 8 outlet power bar,netgear wireless adapter, temp prob, ph probe.... ATTENTION!!!!!(display has some missing lines or rows of LEDs. Can still be controlled from display, setup on computer, and controlled from phone app)))))))275.00 OBO shipped. I have had this unit for several years without any problems. Neptune vdm-65$ Shipped Newest price, has the white label on the vdm controller Neptune wxm. 55$ Shipped Additional energy bar with 8 outlets105.00 shipped DIY breakout box. Has 6 female plug recepticles. 35$ Shipped It's very nice !! I used it for autotop off with the apex. Will include auto top off floats. All diy but very nice and perfect for the nano. The floats in the tank have dual float in case one went bad. Jbj Led refugium light-25$ upgraded filter box for the back of jbj. I think made by intank, llc. $35 shipped.
